so i know i have been quite absent in the past few months or so and i greatly apologize. i have had alot going on. However i have been doing some light studying as well and thru my ImagineFX magazines and found a very interesting topic of discussion from an article that i have read. "What Your Art Reveal About You".
A Very interesting topic of discussion, and a few professional artists gave their views and tell how some of the artist's character will leak into a concept. Sometimes it will happen purposely or by accident either way it some how manages to come out. In this article professional artist Bryan Beus, who works with both digital and traditional media. Is asked questions that i feel would be interesting for all of use artists to think about when we create our works of art. For example:
* Does Your Art Reveal You Innermost Self?
* What Do You Think A Psychologist Would Say About The Content Of Your Images?
* Have You Deliberately Included Something In A Piece That Is Intensely Personal? ...Or Are They Just Great Images?
These questions are taken from that interview and i stopped to think about the answers to these myself. Have you been asked what your art reveals about you? Have you ever evaluated your work to see if you have revealed yourself in your work? when you think about it... It is sort of an interesting discussion in my opinion.
Does My Art Reveal My Innermost Self? (Yes. I believe it does. I think that i show this thru the Eyes. I always believed that the Eyes are like doorways to the soul. The eyes can express so much emotion, a sense of power behind them. So i feel when i do a portrait i tend to spend most of my time detailing the eyes. Enhancing their color and beauty, make them stand out and capture your gaze.)
What Do I Think A Psychologist Would Say About The Content Of My Images? ( Tough question... that one is hard to say. I actually don't really know the answer to that question lol. I know a lot of ppl have told me that the images that i create look a lot like me in a way. which i myself dont see that lol but other say the do. So perhaps maybe with the images i create...Fashion Wise i can see a lil bit of me in there i guess. I like being slightly fashionable at times and i like all kinds of fashion. Casual, Rock, Sporty, Elegant ect. Also I do put a lot of myself...Energy wise, into my work. I do spent hrs and hrs working non stop creating my artwork. I throw on my headset listening to my rock music which i feel help to channel my energy while i work. Pushing me to complete an 8 hr picture. Since im so passionate with my work, maybe that is what a Psychologist would say. lol)
Have I Deliberately Included Something In A Piece That Is Intensely Personal? (Hmmm. I don't think so really. I think with the colors maybe i would say. The color choices, i would say are the only things that i can think of that i deliberately picked out. N that also plays a big part of the mood as well. I guess, depending on my mood it sort of shows a lil bit through my work, Color Wise. It's sad to sort of say that when im angry or upset at something the more detailed my work is. But then on the other hand the intense passionate drive that i sometimes have can be shown through my color choices as well. Color has a lot of meaning to a picture so i really spend time to actually think about my color choices to incorporate into my work.)
Again an interesting topic of discussion and something to think about and evaluate yourself on. lol. Take a moment and think about these questions and answer them the best you can, how you feel about them. Plz feel free to leave a comment if you wish to share your answers and/or discuss this topic further. What Does Your Art Reveal About You?
